As the Triad works it's way into May it is not out of the ordinary to start seeing 90° high temperatures show up in the 7-Day Outlook. In fact if there hasn't been a 90° day by mid-late June then some might consider it to be a somewhat of a mild summer. Chief Meteorologist Grant Gilmore took the idea of 90° temperatures and broke it down by the numbers and here is what he found.
90's By The Numbers:
- The earliest 90° day in a year in the Triad was on March 3, 1945
- The latest in the year there has been a 90° day in the Triad was October 12, 1904
- The average number of 90° days in the Triad is 37
- The least number of 90° days in the Triad in a year is 4 (2013)
- The most number of 90° in the Triad in a year was 82 (1914)
